The first thing Yuuri registered when he woke up was the soft pitter-patter of rain outside.
He smiled. Rain meant he could stay in bed just a little longer, since Victor liked to drag him out for a morning run. He liked running, but he also liked the feeling of just waking up, when your bed’s still warm and it’s the most comfortable place on Earth.
Yuuri pulled the sheets up to his neck and burrowed into his bed. He felt so nice, so warm and boneless. He could almost fall asleep again…
An ice cold hand traced over his side.
Yuuri shrieked and tried to wiggle away from the intrusion. An arm wrapped around his middle and pulled him back against a hard chest.
Yuuri turned over and saw a slightly blurred Victor. He smiled down at Yuuri and bent forward to kiss his forehead. Yuuri smiled and pushed his face into Victor’s neck. The hickey he left there last night stood out on his pale skin.
It was Bee’s idea to suggest a service dog to Andrew
She brought it up during his joint session with Aaron
Andrew simply said “No.” before standing up and leaving
He figured the dog would be more trouble than it was worth, and would attract a lot of unwanted attention. Plus he didn’t think he needed one, simple as that.
He never told Neil about Betsy’s suggestion
It wasn’t until he left Neil alone at Palmetto for a week while he traveled around looking at Pro Exy teams, that he began to entertain the idea.
Neil told him he was ‘fine’ without Andrew constantly next to him
(He woke up a couple nights from nightmares but he wasn’t about to complain)
But the day before Andrew got back was a really bad day, and Neil couldn’t hide his panic attack from the others. Matt called Andrew when he couldn’t get a response out of Neil, and it was only after about ten minutes of Andrew talking to him on the phone that Neil could finally breathe again.
